How does “Reputation” work?

If a user with reputation 1 gets a down vote, his reputation is not lowered. Are the down-votes considered, when the same user gets some up-votes?

Supposing that a user gets 3 down-votes and 3 up-votes for a question he made, will his reputation be 15 or 9?

It will be 15 assuming all the up votes are cast after all the down votes.

Down votes that are made when a user already has the minimum reputation, are simply ignored.

Yes; I meant that all the down votes are cast before all the up votes. – kiamlaluno Jul 10 '10 at 12:29

The minimum possible rep is always 1 in every case.

This is why if you think you have any idiocy that you really can't control, it's best to get it out of your system right away. :) – Jaydles Jul 10 '10 at 14:11
